For more than 30 years, FMEA has recognized Florida public power utilities’ efforts to ensure worker and crew safety is the highest priority.

Criteria and Selection Process: FMEA member utilities are placed into categories based on their total annual worker-hours and rewarded for the most incident-free records. The incidence rate used to judge utilities is based on the number of work-related reportable injuries or illnesses compared to the total number of worker-hours, as defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
